The Bag Buzz: Kate Spade Cobble Hill Little Curtis

I have a new love in my life this summer…

Yes, I am talking about a handbag!  LOL 😀 I purchased this stunning mint blue beauty back in late January as a birthday present to myself and tucked it away for sunnier days.  My Kate Spade Cobble Hill Little Curtis is the quintessential summer bag for me!  Not only is it my preferred size and shape, but the color is spot on for the season.  Kate Spade calls it “Grace Blue” and it is what drew me to the bag in the first place.  The bag retails for $278 and comes in several other colors.  The Grace Blue shade is currently on sale for $194!


I didn’t realize how awesome the design was until I started carrying it.  It has an adjustable and detachable 20″ drop cross body strap which makes it easy to carry either on one shoulder or cross body.  Additionally, there is a smaller 5″ drop handle that is long enough to comfortably carry on your arm or over a shoulder.  I love that the shorter handle tucks nicely behind the bag when you’re wearing it long.  Four ways to wear one bag is pretty sweet!  I prefer to wear it with the long strap but certainly appreciate having the option to wear it shorter.

OJ_TBBB_07-09-2014_03The Little Curtis is made from a beautiful pebbled leather that is super soft.  While the bag is not rigid in nature, it does hold it’s shape well with a reinforced bottom to prevent sagging.  The gorgeous light gold hardware accents the mint beautifully.  The bag is medium in size, measuring 8.66″ high x 9.84″ wide x 5” deep and is lightweight.  It has a smaller exterior zip pocket across the front , which is a handy place to stow my iPhone (with the super cute Hello Sunshine phone case by Rifle Paper Company on it right now) and vlogging camera (a Canon PowerShot S120) for easy access.  The main compartment has a zip pocket on the back interior as well as two slip pockets along the front interior.  The entire bag is lined in a lovely poly twill with a gold and cream striped print.

There is ample space in the main compartment to stash my everyday purse essentials.  I am going to share the contents of my purse with you despite the fact that they are the same month after month.  I don’t switch these items up very often. I may change my bags out fairly frequently, but I like to keep the contents more or less the same.

Here’s a look at them in case you’re still interested:


1. Orla Kiely Sweet Pea Beauty Organizer – My current Walking Pharmacy, this Target exclusive has great organizational elements built right in. Still available in a different print!
2. Vinyl Zip Pouch with Coupons – Exact one shown is no longer available but I also like this alternative from The Container Store.
3. Henri Bendel Mind Your Business Case – I keep my special store cards in this beauty.
4. Two Pocket Card Holder from ATime4Everything on Etsy – A great way to cut down on bulky card cases!  I stow gift cards and business cards in mine.
5. Ginger Mints from Trader Joe’s
6. Mulberry Bow ID Purse – My current favorite wallet!  Perfectly sized to carry in smaller bags.
7. Dum Dums – Don’t leave home without ’em! 😉
8. Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee and Dior Addict Lip Balm in #3 (similar product linked) – My current favorite lippies!
9. A small tin filled with treats for my pup, Winnie, and poopy bags.
10. Car keys with my favorite Henri Bendel Bow Stripe Key Fob and Swiss Army Knife (this has come in so handy over the years!) and my house keys on a keychain sent from a viewer in Malaysia.  Thanks, again, I love it!

    1. I am currently carrying a Michael kors Hamilton in vanilla, my husband surprised
      Me on our anniversary. I love it.

  1. Hi Jenn, thank you for a chance to win this beautiful bag. I just bought a Michael Kors large tote for traveling this summer. So that is my style right now…

  2. i love kate spade bags (and dresses, and accessories, and stationary…), but i’ve never had one! i think this bag looks amazing with your tank top in the pictures, though! it’s awesome to have one that can be casual or a bit fancier!

    i find that also tends to stock really cute, ‘trendy’ bags often, usually at really budget-friendly prices–which is good when you’re in love with a style but not sure how LONG you’ll be in love with it for! 😉

  3. Hi!! This is an Awesome giveaway. My VERY first handbag was a Kate Spade Tote back in the 90’s that i bought with my graduation from high school with. I’m currently in search of the KS Wellesley Zip Around Agenda in any color but i’m having no luck…Anyways, I go to handbag are Michael Kors they are by far the best handbags for me…at the moment :-).

  4. I like the Kathy bags. but I do have quite a few different brands of bags in multi sizes.

    Love your videos Jen.

  5. I’m currently carrying the Fossil Maddox Organizer Flap Crossbody in Bright Patchwork. I love all of the built in organization of this bag. My favorite handbag brands are Fossil and Coach. I’m a sucker for soft leather handbags 🙂

  6. I am loving my Rembecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C right now for summer! It is in the taupe color and is great for summer outings!

  7. I never enter giveaways, but I simply HAD to for this bag! I typically gravitate towards Coach, but I’m trying to branch out. I have an AWESOME Frye bag and also have my eye on a Rebecca Minkoff. Good luck everyone!!! YIPEE!!!!!!!!

  8. Hello Jennifer..I think you are delightful. I just wanted you to know that I could be your grand mother age wise, lol. I am never too old to learn and certainly enjoy viewing your videos. Keep smiling and enjoy the rest of summer. Oh, I do love that hand bag also. I think it is the colour that is so appealing!

  9. Jen, my jaw literally dropped when I saw your giveaway!! I especially love that you make this international as it’s not easy to get Kate Spade even here in Canada. There is a Nordstrom opening in my city this Fall and my fingers are crossed that they will carry her line.

    Have a happy day Jen.

  10. I like lulu Guinness bags from JCP. They’re a combo of vintage, quirky, and classic all in one with great storage features.

  11. That is a gorgeous bag and I love the color! I admire Kate Spade but have never owned a KS bag. I also like Coach. Your photo and tips for your purse organization inspires me to go clean mine out! : )

  12. You have been one of my favorite You Tubers to watch. I love your mild manner and interests match mine. I really loved watching your YouTube video on this. When I saw you were doing a give away, it literally brought tears to my eyes. That is such a nice thing for you to do for someone.

  13. Loving Ralph Lauren bags lately but that Kate Spade bag is gorg! Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway.

  14. I have never owned a designer handbag. I picked Fossil because I have owned a few of those and that’s about as designer as I can get from the Fossil Outlet in Park City, Utah for a good price. Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. Dooney & Bourke. I remember the brand from my childhood when I’d “go shopping” in my mom’s closet. 😉 Now, I have the nylon fabric shopper bag in the most beautiful turquoise and LOVE it. After a cross-country vacation, when I had it loaded down to the max, I can attest to how well they are made. Great, great bags. Thanks for the opportunity to win & keep up the great work. I truly enjoy your posts.

  16. WOW Jen – what an over the top generous giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right now I’m on a Dooney & Burke handbag kick.

  17. You are so generous for always giving away nice gifts. I’ve been following you on youtube for a few months and love your vlogs! You also inspired me to be more organized and i even bought the same orla kiely organizer after watching it on your vlog.

  18. My favourite just now is gabs – it is an Italian brand which is fantastic leather and allows you to adjust the size too!

  19. Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful bag! Been following you on all your channels and blogs – love you and love what you do and your outlook on life! Keep up the great work –

  20. I LOVE this bag!! I have a couple of Modalu Pippa’s in different colours but I’m ready for a change!! What perfect timing (if I win!!)

  21. Hi Jen… I’m loving my neverful gm as it’s great for the summer…I love Kate Spade but she’s not in Ireland…:( happy summer…love your videos and Winnie reminds me of my Shih tzu… She was 17 when she died…..I have many happy memories…x

  22. I am a thrift store handbag kind of lady. I find a large variety of interesting bags, from all different brands. Surprisingly enough, they are usually in really good condition. It helps me have a large variety to choose from to match my outfit, without costing me too much. I never carry the same bag for more than a week. I love your bag though, I am a HUGE fan of the color, and soft leather. 🙂

  23. Olá Jen eu não te sigo no twitter porque não tenho mas te sigo em todos os outros porque i love you e todos os seus videos adorava ter uma mala como essa seria a minha primeira mala de marca beijos 🙂

  24. I really love Longchamp (i have several le pliage and two leather bags). because they are very light, classic and fit all clothing perfectly, but i am always in search of the another perfect bag. Great giveaway!

  25. That is SUCH a gorgeous bag!
    My favorite is the Bag of Holding series at ThinkGeek though. I can NEVER find what I’m looking for, but I have plenty of pockets to hide everything with my Handbag of Holding, LOL

  26. I fell in love with this Kate spade bag more and more through out this whole video, firstly the colour, but then just the brilliantly simple yet still so beautiful design. Such a great find on your part. I don’t actually own any designer bags so I can’t make a comment about any others sorry. When you mentioned this one was on sale right now I was so tempted to look in to buying one but realistically just not in my budget. But has definitely given me something to lust after! 🙂
    Also just wanted to mention how generous you are with all your give aways. Truly shows your beautiful spirit as myself and so many others I’m sure too just love watching your videos with or without your amazing give aways. 🙂
    Ps. I love your organising videos too, that’s how I originally found you I think a couple years back.

  27. I own a ton of Coach bags! My DHs mother carried Coach and when we met years ago he noticed so did I. Of course now it is the only brand he has bought for me. My sweetheart! However, Friday is my birthday 7-11, and I think I too must branch out and buy myself something new. Cannot beat the price for certain. Thank you for all your great input, and thoughts. We have very similar tastes and it is nice to get that reassurance every now and again. Be well!


  28. Jen, thank you for the give away opportunity. The nicest bag I have ever owned up to this point is a “Dooney”. ” love that little brown duck/drake? logo.

  29. I just love the color of this bag! 🙂

    Right now I am carrying a great oilcloth bag (similar to Cath Kidston…I have a smaller bag of hers that organizes things in my purse). 🙂

  30. I Love Vera Bradley bags, I discovered them at an outlet mall in Florida a few years back and I’ve ended up building a bit of a collection since! I love the quilted design and the patterns, so colorful and fun, and SO many pockets inside – I’m a sucker for a bag filled with pockets!

    Sarah 🙂
    Saloca in Wonderland

  31. I am a fan of the Vera Bradley purses, etc.! I love most of the patterns but also love the black quilted bags. Vera Bradley has many pockets inside each bag. Love them!!

    Your videos have inspired me to reorganize everything from my home, car, office, and life. Thank you for sharing so much of your life with all of us. I am sure it takes a lot for you put things out there for all to watch and comment on. Keep it up!! You are an inspiration to many, including me. Many thanks!!

  32. This is a such a generous prize! I have a similar colored purse right now that I switched over for the summer, but I don’t love the quality. This seems like a great all around purse and easy to keep organized.
    Have a wonderful day!!

  33. I’m not in the know when it comes to purse designers, but I do like some of Lulu Guiness’s designs!

  34. I am currently carrying a Coach beaded starfish tote from their line a couple summers ago. Love the Kate Spade! I discovered these not that long ago when the new outlet mall by my house sent all the teachers in my district an email that we get an extra discount when we shop there. Love companies that think about teachers! The outlet doesn’t have this soft leather though in any of their bags 🙁 Would love to add this to my collection. Thanks for the opportunity!

  35. I love watching your videos Jen, I always look forward to them! Thank you for your kindness and sweet spirit 🙂 Watching (or listening if I’m cooking or driving) keeps me great company and I always learn something new to try! Hope you and Don and Bunny girl have a great week!!

  36. My current favorite bag is one that I got at a craft festival. It is “custom” made black leather. It is so soft and has multiple pockets. Just love it.

  37. Oh my cookies, you crack me up. I have gifts cards too. At least they are all in one place. I never remember to use them. But maybe I should stick them in a business card holder like you did. I hold on to them too, for some reason. I tend to think they will come in handy one day. I think the ones I have don’t expire.

    Sometimes when I am in at store, I see items in mint and I go, “Oh Jen would like this!”

  38. I am enjoying Michael Kors bags currently; however, I really like many others. Jen, you are such a generous, sweet soul. I enjoy everything you share and appreciate that you are so kind to share all that you do. Wishing you many blessings!!!!!

  39. Great giveaway!
    I currently don’t have a certain brand I look for. There is a little shop in the town where I work and I love the bags they get in. This season I have a wonderful Orange bag and the brand on it is SQ

  40. I love Coach and Michael Kors handbags and have been trying to expand my horizons. Currently I am carrying a Henri Bendel that I am enjoying. The color and style of your Kate Spade are just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing it with is and for your generous giveaway!

  41. My heart nearly stopped when you mentioned the giveaway. I’ve been obsessing over this purse since you shared it in January.
    I signed up for the giveaway! 🙂
    Thanks for your generosity.

  42. You have such great taste in handbags! I love this bag along with many more from your collection. Wish I could afford to buy these myself. Well I’m in the draw so I’ll keep my fingers crossed. You have inspired me so much to change the organisational systems in my house and my life and they look sooooo much better. I’m so glad I found your channels

  43. I actually carry a large Coach tote to and from work with a smaller leather cross-body Coach bag to run errands at lunch. So I guess I’m a Coach girl. Thank you for the give-away, it;s a very lovely handbag!

  44. This is such a generous giveaway!!

    I hope you will still let me enter, after I tell you that I have carried the same bag for about 10 years. It is a backpack style leather purse that I bought at Nordstrom. I love it because I can slip it on and walk from my car to my office with my computer bag (Michael Kors) in one hand and my latte in the other. It is also great for traveling, because you can carry your wallet safely zippered in a pocket, which rests against your back. I also don’t have to worry about it in the Seattle rain.

    Since I’ve been watching your Bag Buzz video’s, however, I have been considering a cross body bag – which would work equally as well and would be WAY more stylish!! 🙂

    1. Of course you can enter! Some peopl have one or two bags they carry for decades. Others (like me) switch it up a bit more often. It all works 🙂

  45. How amazing is this giveaway thank you so much for giving us this opportunity! You’re so kind and I am so grateful! You’re such an inspiration to my life and I’m so glad I found on YouTube

  46. Hi Jen! Thank you for the chance to win this beautiful bag! I can’t afford bags such as this, but I love them! I once paid $100 for a bag…we call them pocketbooks down south….. back in the late 80’s early 90’s that I still have. It’s too warn to carry, but I can’t give it up! 🙂
    I’ve been enjoying your weekend vlogs. Can’t wait to see where you’re (we’re) headed to next.
    You’re the best! Hope you, Don and Winnie have a great evening!

  47. Brahmin bags are my favorite. I especially like the ones that look like crocodile skin. I also like Michael Kors bags. This Kate Spade bag looks like a perfect size and is a beautiful color that I wear frequently.

  48. I’m currently carrying a bag I bought in December from Banana Republic that’s surprisingly just as great in quality as my more expensive bags! Fantastic & generous giveaway, I adore you! 😀

  49. Hi Jen, I love all your videos. Because you had such a great review I bought the Too Faced neutral palette and have really enjoyed it. Thanks again for this opportunity.

  50. I love Coach bags. 2 years ago they came out with a pebbled leather bag in a cream/light greyish color and it has these adorable, yet large, black leather tassels. So nice.

    What do you have in the cute gum machine on your desk with your backsplash? I’ve been trying to guess the last few videos. It just doesn’t look like chewing gum to me. Looks a lot like gummy stuff…gummy fish maybe? Hahaha. Just wondering.

    **Are a very dear and selfless person!! Thank you for this very Oh My Gosh, crazy generous opportunity to win this beautiful bag!

  51. Thank you so much for the giveaways. I truly appreciate you giving back to us “fans”. I enjoy your vlogs and again I just want to say thank you.

  52. Right now I’m using an Oscar DeLaurentes tote. I love tote style, open top, structured bags with lots of pockets. I don’t own any expensive handbags, but I like to switch out bags every week or so. I adopted your use of the Orla Keiley cosmetic bag. Target sold a very similar one. It is a great idea that makes switching handbags fast and easy. What a generous giveaway!

  53. I carry all kinds of bags…..mostly Coach and fossil but I have always wanted a KS bag. Thanks for the chance to win one. I really enjoy your videos!

  54. Do you know when you’ll have your What’s in my Tub & Shower Video for Summer 2014?
    Also will you have a 2014 Spring Tea Time with Jen up?
    I really enjoy those two videos!

    1. The tub/shower update will probably be next month. I haven’t been drinking a lot of tea lately so I’m not sure. I know I will start up again when the weather gets cooler. There may be one later this summer, but if not, for sure in the fall 🙂

  55. ohhh my this video made me go searching in Australia for this handbag I feel hard for it! and I usually use brown handbags, like the Whipping Post tote, and the Modula Pippa handbag in toffee! but omg…hearts a flutter!

  56. I have never owned a designer handbag because I cannot afford it, but this bag is Sooooo lovely and I cannot believe how generous you are being in offering one as a giveaway. Thank you for a chance at winning one. I watch all your videos, even the bag buzz, just because I can’t afford it doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it. . . Lol! You have such a lovely personality and I hope you continue to do videos for a long time to come!

  57. Loved this video. Beautiful bag, was just looking for a new summer bag…maybe I will get lucky!! I have a fossil tote I love, but I want something a little smaller with a crossbody strap for summer. Thanks for sharing this beauty!! 😀

  58. Your new bag looks great. I tend to go towards Dooney & Bourke. I love their bags and quality. I just go my first coach cross over bag a month ago. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome bag.

  59. Michael Kors because they all have my initials on them. 🙂 I love the color of this Kate Spade bag one of my favorite colors!

  60. Omg! I am praying I win this although I never have much luck winning through raffle copter. You are such an inspiration. I love your organized Jen videos. You have motivated me to get my house in order. Thank you!

  61. Love that bag!! I know you keep lip products in your bag but do you ever carry make up in your bag? Or a makeup bag?

    1. I don’t really carry a lot of makeup aside from my current fave lip products. I have a little powder compact and some concealer but that’s it. I keep those in my Walking Pharmacy case.

  62. The Kate Spade I gorgeous. Especially the color!!! The few bags I have are either black or brown. I little booooorring don’t ya think?! I love Brahmin bags. I have 4. Black and brown of course!!!!

  63. Great bag buzz! Beautiful handbag and I love the color! And wow, what a generous giveaway too – you are so kind!

    Haha I’m the same as you, I always tend to hang onto my gift cards forever!!

    My favourite handbags right now are Loewe – really gorgeous quality!

  64. Thank You for hosting this great giveaway. I love the color of this Kate Spade bag!! The bag is gorgeous!!

  65. Honestly I want to win this giveaway more than any other one I have ever entered. Because I love this purse and desperately need a new one but I just cannot afford it right now. Plus I am in the process of trying to find a new job so I am not kidding when I say I cannot afford a new purse right now.
    Anyway, love the purse and I love the way Jen oorganizes her purses. Plus it is so sweet she is giving away one of these bags to her viewers. Thanks, Jen. Love your videos.

  66. Hi Jen,

    I just wanted to say thank you for sharing with all of us your beautiful Kate Spade bag. That color has always been a favorite of mine and I as well have many items in that same shade of mint. Mostly in office supplies since I seem to have a weakness for creative but colorful ways to keep all my paperwork, correspondence, finances and school supplies displayed and stored. Which I learned a lot from your videos on your cordinating channels and blog posts, so thank you very much for that as well. As for the size and style of the bag, I agree with you on how nice the handle lays, the convenience of both handle and shoulder strap, the softness of the leather, the quality of the inner lining and the size is perfect for all your necessary needs to fit easily without hassle. Thank you again for sharing and I am looking forward to the next post be it picture, video or blog. 🙂

  67. I vote for fossil bags as I love the quality of leather for the price, they wear so well. However I’ve never had a Kate Spade bag to compare!

  68. I don’t even really look at the designer bags because I’m not likely to be picking one up anytime soon but did just buy a perfectly cute and functional Steve Madden bag today for work and on sale. Love the Kate Spade and love leather that’s just like butter.

  69. Hi Jen, i love the color of the bag it’s so pretty…i just bought a wallet and a card holder from Kate Spade in a hot pink color 😉 i’m a pinky girl 🙂 but not a purse so i hope to be lucky to win ;)…thanks for the giveaway, you are so sweet.

  70. Lately, I’ve been carrying a small Brighton organizer wallet. I also own Coach, Dooney, Rebecca Minkoff, and Cole Haan. I’ve never purchased a Kate Spade before but I’ve come close when they go on sale.

  71. I am a Dooney girl! Love my Dooney and Bourke Florentine Bags! I never post comments but I LOVE this blog and felt the need to comment. What a generous giveaway! WOW!

  72. This bag you are giving away Jen is beautiful. I hope one of your truly lovely fans wins. Thank you for your generosity. I have learned over many years that a fine handbag carries a lot of elegance with it! My mom always used to say that, and ‘you get what you pay for!’ It’s worth paying more for a handbag that will last a lifetime if you take good care of it than settling on a cheaply made one that might not even last the season. I think It’s worth saving for a good quality one whether you can afford it or not. I think of all the cheap ones I’ve purchased over the years that I regretted later on and might all add up to that one expensive one I always wanted. My mother loved Chanel purses and right now I’m enjoying my MK one. 🙂

    “HANDBAGS: You will add distinction to your overall look if you carry an elegant handbag. The larger the handbag, the less dressy it is. One top quality bag will outlive three or four cheap ones.” – French style-guru Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux on Elegance and style.

  73. I was so shocked that you were giving the purse away. I was just admiring it and then you pop out with the surprise! =D You are so giving Jen.. I did enter as loving coach purse (which i do) but the current purse im using is Marc Fisher.

  74. Dear Jen,
    I wanted to let yo know how much I enjoy all of your videos. I am away from home for 6 weeks teaching summer school in a low income community, I am staying in a college dorm and I don’t have TV with me, But I don’t miss it because I have all of your channels to enjoy in my spare time. I think you are extremely generous to give away so many products to your viewers!!!! You have beautiful taste, I love mint too and i’m into smaller bags these days also.

  75. Hiya Jen!MI like the Vera Bradley style of bags because I love the quilted fabric,with its beautiful colors and vibrant prints,and I love the pockets and sturdy shapes of the different types of bags…I just love the sshade of minty green for this particular bag…it looks so sophisticated,it really should have the word “grace” in its color name!!:)

  76. I love this bag and the colour!! I have recently discovered Kate Spade and have to say I love it!!
    Thank you so much for sharing yourself with us!! I love how positive and energetic you are!! You have inspired me to do some reorganization in my house! Thank you for that!!

  77. OMG thank you for the beautiful give away. I have never won a thing in my life so fingers crossed. Good luck to you. I am so glad I found your channel

  78. This bag looks amazing. I love those kind of bags. I´m mostly wearing George Gina & Lucy bags and my Longchamp le pliage tote.

  79. I am obsessed with this bag! I have been a huge supporter of Kate spade for 2 years now and her bags are to die for! The construction is gorgeous and the colour selection is great!
    Love your videos Jen, don’t stop what your doing you are awesome!

  80. Just had to give you props for your giveaways! Actually it’s funny how good we feel when we give things to others and see how much they appreciate it! It’s awesome! Would love to see a video on the Mulberry ID purse. Just curious as to how much it holds. Thanks for all that you do! It matters to a lot of us.

  81. Awesome Giveaway! For so many years all I carried was Vera Bradley bags, but last year, my husband and I went to Disney to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and I saw this bag that just caught my eye. It was a Disney Dooney and Bourke. Had never spent that much on a bag before, but couldn’t say no! It took me a few days before I finally bought it, had to really think about it, but I caved 🙂 My husband bought me another for my birthday off of the Disney website and then I got a third off a FB group for our next anniversary, so I now have 3 Disney D&B! I cherish them!! I now know what it’s like to have an expensive bag and love them!

  82. I have an older Kate Spade floral bag that I used on vacation and have been loving Arcadia “Alena” in orchid for work this summer. Love your videos and generous giveaway. Keep Shining!!!!

  83. Hey Jen I am worrying that something is wrong. You have not posted your past 2 videos. Which is totally fine I was just worried something is wrong. Also maybe at the end of your closet organization videos you could do a handbag collection. I know you me worried about what people say but maybe just turn off comment or approval only. Have a great day and hope everything is ok.

  84. I don’t have a favourite bag brand, but I have a favourite style: medium-sized, leather and usually slightly elegant.

  85. I switch up handbags, so do not have a fav…. I love Kate Spade… Only have one, but love the look and design of this one… 🙂 I think I need some more Kate Spade in my life 🙂 So classic and beautiful color

  86. Right now I’m carrying a Coach three pocket shoulder bag. The pattern is pale grey, a soft orange, and a white. Very cute and light for summer!

  87. I love this handbag! Currently, I am using an ivory / black Nine West bag I purchased while on vacation this year.

  88. Jen you are so kind to host a giveaway like this. Thank you. It is a beautiful bag, a bag that anyone would be thrilled to have. Such a beautiful colour too. I can tell how much you enjoy giving gifts/giveaways. You are always thoughtful. Helen

  90. I have always wanted a good name brand purse but I’ve never been able to have the money for it I’ve always just save my money and just gotten some cheaper brand name bags to hold me over, but I love all your videos and all these things are such an inspiration and I would just love to be able to have one good name brand bag of some sort one day.

  91. Recently found your YT channels & you have me hooked on Kate Spade. I just received a KS wristlet from my hubs for our anniversary! Thanks for sharing all that you do!

  92. My go-to is a bag by Holly Aiken, who designs and creates in her Raleigh, NC shop, Stitch. I have a Piper style, open top messenger bag that was a collaboration with local Raleigh artist Casey Porn, It is a fun, functional bag that gets loads of comments. I’ve never owned a KS bag, but do think they are so lovely! Thank you for you generous spirit, and how you share so much with your readers/viewers!

  93. Hi Jen
    Wow! What a beautiful bag. I’ve been using a Fossil bag for a while and I just love how practical and simple most of their bags are. I’ve just recently signed up to your YT channels and I was awake most of the night watching them, lol, Thanks they’re really fun and awesome to watch.

  94. The only designer handbag that I have is a Dooney and Bourke bag my husband gave me for my 21 birthday. I love it!

  95. Hi Jen,

    LOVE this bag. I went out and got it when you first purchased, love at first sight!! I’m hoping I can find a comparable one/color for the winter. Thank you as always for inspiring me!!

    Side question~ What capri denim are you wearing? I’m finding it hard to find shorts that fit right, and am much more comfortable in capri denim like that.

    Thank you again!

    1. Those are & For All Mankind crops I’ve had for several years. I believe I bought them at Bloomingdales.

  96. Just have to say that this is such a gorgeous bag!

    This post also inspired me to check out the Kate Spade website and I’ve now ordered my second purse – the Cobble Hill Curtis in black – because everyone needs a beautiful black purse, right? And a wallet in the same Grace blue as your purse. It’s such a gorgeous colour and I desperately wanted something, but couldn’t quite see myself using a purse in that colour enough.
